What Does IWHI Mean in a Text?

IWHI (I Would Hit It) is typically used between males on chat forums when looking at pictures of women. "I Would Hit It" is a colloquialism for "I would sleep with [her]". The word "hit" is a euphemism for "sleep with."

An Academic Look at IWHI

IWHI is used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement).In other words, it is not used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.

IWHI is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Aye Dublyu Aich Aye), but as this is far harder to say than "I would hit it," it is not often said using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation IWHI is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.

What Did We Say before Texting and Social Media?

Before the digital era, we might have said something like "I would" or "Marks out of 2? I'd give her 1" instead of IWHI.
